What You Can Expect

Lion Habitat Ranch: General Admission with optional Private Tour

Lion Habitat Ranch

Your up-close feline encounter begins when you enter the Lion Habitat Ranch near Las Vegas, the 8.5-acre (3.4-hectare) home to cats that previously worked at the MGM Lion Habitat. Since the early 1990s, the sanctuary has been the residence of more than 40 lions and their adorable cubs. The ranch staff provides care to the big cats for the rest of their natural lives, and donates a portion of proceeds to wild lion habitats. Stroll along the paved paths for unobstructed views of the giant cats lounging, playing and napping in their habitats. You also have the option of choosing one of the following upgrades to enhance your experience.

Private Small-Group Tour
If you would like to observe the hunters from a different vantage point, choose a private tour. Limited to ten people, professional trainers answer any burning questions about raising and taming lions during an interactive Q&A. After you’ve learned about the inner workings of the sanctuary, explore the grounds on a guided tour. Watch as kings of the jungle and their cubs feed, train, and bathe.

We had such a good time. A great place to bring your family. All the staff is very friendly and informative.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2014

The lion habitat is more than expected. It has a few other animals as well, and the trainers were very informative when they feed the lions. The lions are really close to get great pictures. I would definitely recommend a visit.
